Recognising Our Clinical Trialists

Raising the Profile of  Our Clinician Investigators

​On 25 January 2022, SingHealth Duke-NUS Academic Medical Centre (AMC) launched a new Clinical Trialist Development Programme (CTDP), as a prestigious award to recognise the important work that our clinical trialists do and to also support them with much-needed protected time to do clinical trials.

​Through this time, she has seen encouraging growth in support for clinician researchers in the form of programmes ranging from awareness seminars to funding programmes. As someone who had personally benefitted from initiatives supporting researchers, she was pleased to be able to play a key role in the development of SingHealth Duke-NUS Academic Medical Centre’s latest Clinician Investigator Advancement Programme (CIVA).
